I still have a few leaks to deal with. My first impression driving was, what did I leave in the exhaust pipe? Its really quiet! No more drone, and alot quieter then I ever expected. My wife knows nothing about cars, but she said it sounds completely different, she'll actually ride in it now.

I just drove around the city so I really couldn't get on it, but the low-mid range power is REALLY nice, definitely gained alot in the mid-range power.

Now, whether this was worth consuming 1.2% of my lifespan to put on is another discussion.

Just wanted to post this for some of you that have been thinking about going with this set-up. This weekend I'm putting on my Magnaflow catback and getting the car to the dyno. I have digital video of all my exhaust clips if anyones interested.

I'm VERY interested in your dyno results. This is something I have been kicking around for a LONG time now, but I just can't bring myself to do it. If I see proven power gains I think that will be all the nudging I need! Your car was strong in the mid range before, so that's awesome if you gained even more out of it!
